Albemarle County is sponsoring teachers to participate in a World Peace Game Master Class in Charlottesville from June 18-22. Using John Hunter’s World Peace Game as an inspiring and challenging analogy, master class participants observe Hunter facilitating the game live with students each morning. Afternoon sessions focus on introducing teachers to the guiding philosophy and pedagogical principles that underlie the game; essential attributes necessary to facilitate the game; and designing learning that is inspired by the principles and spirit of the game.
Interested participants are invited to an informational meeting on February 8 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the ARC at Murray High School. Please direct questions to John Hobson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
